My husband and I booked a short notice fishing/wildlife combo tour with Jack Springer at Campbell River Whale Watching and Adventure Tours. Jack was extremely accommodating and resourceful at meeting our needs for a fishing charter and a covered boat wildlife tour.
The fishing charter guide, Sonny Boon, was outstanding. In the first ten minutes we had a double hit with our first chinook and a ling cod. By the end of the morning we had two more chinook salmon. Sonny was very patient with us, providing timely advice and entertaining stories throughout the morning. We would fish with him again.
The next day we boarded a very comfortable covered tour boat. Leif (aka “Mario”), our driver and tour guide, was also outstanding. He maintained communication with his network, first providing humpback sighting information then receiving an orca sighting location. He explained the waters we were exploring, the wildlife we were looking for and their migrating habits. We were very fortunate; we saw a humpback whale, eagles, sea lions, porpoise, orcas and amazing scenery.
These were two memorable days. We are grateful to Jack and his team for taking such good care of us.
